Since 1990, BREEAM’s third-party certified standards have helped improve asset performance at every stage, from design through construction, to use and refurbishment. ​​

Millions of buildings across the world are registered to work towards BREEAM’s holistic approach to achieve environmental and social governance (ESG), health and social impact, circularity and resilience, whole life performance and net zero goals.

We deliver BREEAM training online, in person and in virtual classrooms, from introductory learning to assessor courses.
